NOTES: CU is planning to get the match in ahead of the worst of this weekend’s projected snowstorm. A decision on Sunday’s scheduled match against No. 14 USC is expected to be decided on Saturday…This will be the Buffs’ third consecutive match against a top-25 foe after splitting road games last week at then-No. 10 Cal (2-1 win) and No. 23 Stanford (2-1 loss)…Fishel scored a goal for UCLA last season in the Bruins’ 3-0 home win against the Buffs…CU is just 2-10 all-time against the Bruins but those two wins occurred at home — a 1-0- double-overtime win in 2010 and a 1-0 win in 2016…Sharts, who spent two years in the UCLA program before transferring, had scored only one collegiate goal in 28 games before this season…UCLA has outscored its six opponents 15-3…While Sunday’s scheduled match against USC remains in limbo due to weather concerns, the Buffs hit the road next week to face Utah on March 20.
